Heritage Protection


Waitaki has wonderful heritage places — ranging from te wahi tuku ihu a te Maori, archaeological sites, rural and industrial buildings, houses both grand and modest, to our nationally significant limestone civic and commercial architecture.  

We believe it is important to protect our heritage places and our townscapes. They give our region a sense of place and tell our stories.   

We believe heritage conservation should not prevent change but rather allow for change that works with a place, that maintains a place’s integrity, and that provides for the people who live in and work there. Once a heritage place is lost, it cannot be replaced so we want to support owners to protect the district’s heritage.  

We support owners by offering advice and assistance through our heritage advisor, through the Waitaki Heritage Fund, and through our Heritage Consent Fee Waiver(PDF, 205KB)
